Reading Half Marathon - 29/3/09

Reading Half Marathon saw a select group of Thames men produce some fine performances. John Macfarlane made the trip from the West Country to lead the way with 21st place in 69:45, followed one place behind by Andy Weir in 70:39. Unfortunately incorrectly recorded in the results, Mark Tuckett also showed good pre-marathon form with 72:31 for 32nd, and it was good to see Chris Wrighton returning to form with 73:04 for 42nd. There were also decent performances from Toby Pearson (73:51), Olly Mytton (77:55), Anthony Doolittle (81:34) and Charles Cooper (85:56).

Kienbaum 100km - 28/3/09

Not content with a mere 26 miles 385 yards, Matt Lynas ran a superb 7:10:38 for 100km at Kienbaum, near Berlin, placing 2nd overall and 1st M40. Mind bogglingly, this equals his PB for the distance. Matt was rewarded for his considerable endeavours with a table tennis set, but hopefully further international recognition will be a more fitting reward.

Andy Weir was fastest over the 10 mile course, with Matt Lynas flying in from Germany to fox the handicappers and take top spot.


Vertical Rush - 19/3/09
